Two of our dealers sold us the wrong ones that simply slip off and don't work. I simply used a big pair of expandable pliers. Works great and is very fast.

Cool, thanks for the replies. Yeah, a big pair of channel-locks will work but I don't want to bugger it all up over being too cheap to spend $10 for the tool! I usually manage ok with the right tool for the right job, but as soon as I have to improvise, I can feel the skin coming off the knuckles already!

Be sure to get the correct size. I never could find the correct size spanner wrench so I ended up using large channel locks.

I agree. Even the ones that Yamaha said would work for the Grizzly didn't. They all simply slipped off. I don't think you will find the correct spanner.

The spanner wench that Yamaha sells is junk. I even followed my friends suggestion and bought two of them and welded them together. That was a little better but still would slip off all the time. I finally asked my Yamaha Mechanic what he uses...He said he places a rag over the shock to keep from scratching it up and then uses "Channel Lock" pliers.

It really is the easiest way . No more busted knuckles!!!
